Gophers Hockey: Jake Parenteau undergoes surgery & posts X-Rays (PHOTO)

Minnesota Athletics

Ouch!

While MMA fighters have Dana White asking if they "want to be an (expletive) fighter," hockey parents everywhere can just use this picture of a broken leg.

Injured Gophers senior Jake Parenteau posted on Twitter his before and after X-Rays from surgery Monday. The Minnesota defenseman was visibly in pain Friday after checking a Michigan State player 5:12 into the teams' 2-2 tie at Munn Arena. Parenteau had to be helped off the ice.

After Saturday's game, Gopher head Don Lucia that Parenteau is expected to miss 8 weeks with the leg injury, which would put his return in mid-February.

At the very least, it appears that the senior is recovering nicely.
